The S family in katakana

Meet the S family in katakana and the stroke order in your writing!

The S family in katakana

サ = SA
The SA symbol reminds me of an old story about King Solomon. It is said that two women fought over a child. Each said she was the baby's mother. So Solomon, not being able to know who the real mother was, ordered one of the guards to cut the child in two and give each mother a piece. The real mother begged Solomon to let the child live and that she preferred to see the child with the false mother. Solomon, seeing the scene, decided to deliver the child to the true mother, as only the true love of a mother would deliver the child in the arms of another so that the baby could live.

See that the first two lines are part of the sword and the last line is the child being cut into two pieces. Thanks to the mother's true love, the child was left whole.
